  1. Nice of Mikeo to type out what I was going to suggest. If you got that Gretsch, after you put in the superb TV Jones pup, you go extra mile and put in a Les trem 2 for Bigsby like fun at 1/10 the weight, less cost AND easy to move around to other stop tail gits. Got one I'd alternate between my Guild Starfire IV (1999 model) and earlier version of Reverend 6 gun. Have fun! Like yr collection too
  2. I duuno seems like being deployed to Iraq 12 years ago would qualify a "ITS THE WORST!". But just guessing. I haven't been to Iraq
  3. not sure if this will help, or maybe you already checked it out http://fly.electricguitarinnovationlab.org/viewtopic.php?t=63
  4. I suppose you could put on another fret, but there would be no fret board to push the string down on. Push string all the way down to the pickguard below? Might have intonation issues. I've heard of fretless guitars, but never fret boardless guitars.
  5. Suggest doing all you can "conditioning" the AC to your amp. Every little bit helps... maybe
  6. teeth grindingly lovely Please adopt me
  7. Plenty of info and opinions here. I agree good starter is Yamaha. Wisdom? Seems sold out or in short supply these days.
  8. Best of luck. I wonder which is heavier: Robbie's bronze or George's rosewood tele?
  9. I remember when Ibanez were selling those. I'd just bought an AF95 (very similar). Yours has the even fancier fret board inlays than mine + did yours come with Bigsby? I put StewMac golden age pickups in mine and made it brilliant. My brain keeps thinking they also made special model with map on it in pin stripes... is it me or the dementia? Is there a difference?
  10. I'm thinking of scattering what I've got in my condo in Jomtien Thailand. If I die alone (wife stuck in Bangkok), cops come in and steal everything of value. Multiple sources confirm this: lots of geezers here in Thailand cleaned out. You can't take it with you, but shouldn't mean cops can take it with them.
  11. I'll take the thinline tele on the right.... On first bit of scroll down I thought that rack of 15 or so guitars was your "mock ups", then saw the four. haha You make me sick.... with envy. Hope that cheers you up!
  12. This forum is where you will get the best suggestions on inexpensive guitar. Other than moderators (like wonderful Phil), none of us gets a dime for spouting our views and opinions. Who know what financial considerations, level of expertise are at those "best" sites. "None of us is as smart as all of us" & much more "all" here
  13. FWIW Plenty of toilet paper and instant noodles (tons of brands) here in Thailand. Cleaning alcohol, not easily found. 7-11 suggested I buy some of the vodka, scotch, and local firewater instead. Les Paul's too heavy. I'll take a 52 tele, thank you very much
  14. I've got one of those jazz boxes (AF 95) and love it. I think yours may be few years newer as went with simple tail piece but still have those lovely fret marker inlays. You can see my headstock in avatar. All the gold plating came off within weeks, but I am in Thailand.... site had Gretsch knobs for cheap, hence label it a "Grouch" If I might suggest, get some StewMac golden age humbuckers to replace rather blah stock pickups. Made a world of difference (in a good way).
  15. Be sure to post some pics when you finish rehabing it. Love that headstock. Hours of fun ahead. Cool
